Default New brew stand "almost" done.

I brewed for the first time on this system last night. Things went pretty well, need to get something to wrap my mash tun with to keep more constant temps. I will probably also add a second valve at the bottom of the mash tun and one at the top dedicated to recirculation.

A lot of this design was inspired due to this thread:

I'm going to grab some refectex this week and wrap the mash tun. Hopefully I can stabilize temps.
